I've been using the search function trying to find some good setups but there are a ton it seems. I have an 08 epic marathon with the magura marta sl I believe they are. I am looking to upgrade something a little better in terms of stopping power. I seem to fade them really quick. The Avid juicy seem to be mentioned a lot, should I look into those? Any thoughts/recommendations would be much appreciated! :)

Your setup is better than most of the juicy line I run Formula R1s on My S works epic and on my SJ. Amazing modulation, low noise and great power - oh and they are LIGHT -- down side is the price and the thin opening.. requires a bit more set up and maintenance.

I have Juicy's on my Epic and have also tried Maguras...Maguras are far better...Try Elixir...I test rode a bike with them and they worked great...also Formula R1...

Ill take a look at the elixirs and the formula r1s. Price is not one of my top 3 priorities. I would really like better stopping power and less maintenance. if they are lighter then all the better for that too! Thanks for the tips so far guys!
